Banning guns places Americans in greater danger of being a victim of crimes.

Letsdebate24

With all the heated debate about banning guns in America amidst all the recent shootings, it would be foolish to ban and or confiscate all semi automatic rifles as recent Democrats have suggested. Every major study in recent history has proven that there is no correlation between the number of gun owners relating to the number of homicides. In fact the areas of the country that have the strictest gun control have the highest number of homicides whereas the places that have relaxed gun control se...

Dinosaurs Still Exist

Biodome
Pro-Star

I have discovered that a lot of people refer to dinosaurs as being extinct animals that are only a thing of the past. I'd like to challenge that belief and I would invite any such person to come forward and defend their opinion that dinosaurs are indeed extinct.This will be a short debate (2000 characters max for each argument) on a pretty simple top...

God, as depicted in the Bible, is no benevolent

Black-Jesus
harrytruman

I just want a simple, easy and polite debate about religion, which I'm aware is akin to trying to get clean hands washing your hands in a mud pit, but I'm gonna try anyway. And yes, I am aware that this debate has been done hundreds of times. I am going to argue that God, the almighty creator depicted in the Holy Bible, is no benevolent, or malevolent. Four rounds: -1st round: Acceptance/Opening statements -2nd round: Opening arguments -3rd round: Rebuttals/More arguments -4th round: M...

History: Allied countries are just as much to blame for the outbreak of WWII (1939-1945) as Germany

DevlinFr3w99

This debate will focus on the fact that the allied countries are just as much to blame for the outbreak of war in 1939, I will argue the fact that countries, such as Britain, France, the US etc are just as much at blame as Germany is. My opening argument is going to focus heavily on the Treaty of Versailles (signed in 1919) and the effects it had on Germany: After WWI the victorious allies gathered in Versailles, France, in June 1919 and signed the Treaty of Versailles. This document was e...

brontoraptor

Well, what is the economic solvency? It means where there is nothing to worry about your economy. But when you are in such a condition of poverty, that means you have a lot of things to worry about. You will face shelter problem, food problem, blah blah blah..., won't you? So simply it can be asserted that to get rid of the above problems poverty-reduction is the only way,isn't it? So whoever you be, I expect anything more and more easier than poverty reduction from you. Please fill my expe...

Can ordinary people be heroes?

Giaan.Emma
Smitb007

Can ordinary people be heroes? I believe so because not everyone is Superman or Quicksilver but people are just ordinary citizens. The elderly man with the ugly scars on his face. He fought for our country. He is a hero. The thirteen year old girl who is working until one in the morning to feed her younger siblings and get an education for all three of them. She is a hero. You may not know it but anyone can be a hero....

Donald Trump Shall Lose the National Presidential Electrion

TheRealDarkKnight
Concentratingape

Donald Trump shall lose the Presidential Election in a historic landslide. Donald Trump and the GOP requires 40% of the Hispanic votes to make it competitive. This is why Barack Obama won the election in 2004 and 2008: the changing demographics of the USA. With Blacks and Hispanics and non-whites voting overwhelmingly against Trump, Hilary Clinton is the next President of the United States of America. Demographics is the reason why the GOP will lose the Presidential Election and will lose seats...
